Forum Toxicity

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It seems that some of the toxic waste is creeping into the forums. It's been happening for a while and isn't a sudden thing. I'm all for open speech but when the same usual names derail topics and incite arguments and use of ignore buttons... isn't that time for someone official to tap them on the shoulder?

Half the trash I see here wouldn't be tolerated by other managed forums. They would be banned by the impatient by now.

I'm not calling for a ban, but please could we not have our topics polluted by the usual bickering any more?

But this is a pvp git gud.

 

All joking aside, it's the nature of people to be adamant about their point of view and the internet let's people be hostile with no recourse.

I smile and try to not linger long, trolls burn out pretty quick.

Ingame chat is toxic, there are kids there throwing out racial slurs and all sorts of hate just to get attention. 

Forums, on the other hand, are just like forums for any other game. Call everything toxic and it loses meaning.

Aha... It is a bit Pay to Win because costumes give a chance of not losing EXP on death and allow Valk's Cry extraction to manipulate enhancement success for better weapons... as with anything in Black Desert it's convoluted. I'd also mention pets but we get the odd one thrown at us for free. Hmm. I'd say it's more... Pay To Buff?

If you know what you're doing with buffs then yeah you're winning against someone who hasn't buffed, perhaps. Tactics might override this. I've said elsewhere that it's a game of the Rich Elite vs. underdogs... and underdogs do win quite often here.

Anyway, I've been a hypocrite and derailed my own topic with this post! I'll happily discuss this elsewhere, feel free to mention me in an appropriate topic and I'll join in?

Back to business... The whole point is that this forum seems to be running away with itself and I thought we'd appreciate heavier forum management to keep things nice and tidy, civil and polite where possible, etc etc?

Some forums I know have a Rage Room section with a warning description over it, a place for mods to throw... questionable... content, whether against the rules or not, where raging posters can rage at each other while leaving a sense of calm in the topic where they raged. A rage room is even where a mod and member can vilify each other like a tennis match and thus left impersonal and quite enjoyable. Entertaining, sometimes, too.

I'd also understand if we want mods to continue being lazy and the forum go freestyle. ;)
